The University of Nevada is a NCAA Division One men’s college football team that plays its games as part of the Mountain West Conference (MWC). Its third year Head Coach, Brian Polian has compiled a pedestrian record of eleven wins and thirteen losses in his first two years as the team’s leader.
The Wolf Pack, as it is known, has a potent offense. This squad can reach the end zone and score touchdowns. If it has a problem, it is on defense. The University of Nevada football team seems to have trouble keeping opponents from scoring.
Consider the first three games this squad has played so far in 2015. Its season began on a Thursday night, September 3rd, when the Wolf Pack hosted the visiting University of California-Davis. The home team outscored the west coast squad by a score of 31-17.
The following week, September 12th, the twenty-second ranked Wildcats of the University of Arizona came to the University of Nevada and easily beat the home team by a score of 44-20. The Wolf Pack then traveled to seventeenth-ranked Texas A & M last Saturday, September 19th. The home team rolled over the visitors, beating them by a score of 44-27.
It is just three games into the current football season and the Wolf Pack has already been torched for one hundred nineteen points. The outlook in upcoming games is not good.
That’s because this squad’s future home games has it playing the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV) on October 3rd, New Mexico University on October 10th the University of Hawaii on October 24th and San Jose State University on November 14th.
The Wolf Pack has the offense needed to defeat many of those teams. The problem is that its defense may not be able to keep each visiting team from outscoring the University of Nevada. In any event, the games should be entertaining for the team’s loyal fans. There should be lots of scoring and plenty of excitement.
The remaining road schedule facing the Wolf Pack also seems to feature competitive games that can be won. The University f Nevada will travel to the University of Buffalo on Saturday, September 26th to compete against the home team Bulls.
The Wolf Pack will then visit the University of Wyoming on October 17th and Fresno State University on November 15th. There will also be road games against Utah State University on November 21st and San Diego State University n November 28th. That last game will be played over the long Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend.
Depending on its competition, the University of Nevada Wolf Pack can be something of an offensive juggernaut. It can outscore teams to win games. But, if its defense rests, the outcome of many of this team’s games can be disappointing.
In any event, the Wolf Pack should be fun to watch.
